DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AE34 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Enforcement Program for Consumer Products and Commercial and Industrial Equipment 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will propose revising its existing enforcement regulations for certain consumer products and commercial and industrial equipment covered under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended (EPCA). The proposal, if adopted, would provide the regulated industry with further clarity and transparency about DOE’s enforcement process, including enforcement sampling procedures and test notice requirements. The proposal will provide for a process to petition DOE for review and modification or reversal of a determination of noncompliance, and for DOE to have the discretion to consider third-party certification program testing as official enforcement test data. Ultimately, the proposal will further align DOE’s regulations with its statutory authority, foster communication between DOE and the regulated industry, and promote the effective and systematic enforcement of DOE’s regulations.
